Prices keep on dropping for the Samsung Galaxy Tab running Android 2.2, and Best Buy is showing the Verizon Galaxy Tab dropping $100 off the no contract price from $599 to $499!

“What’s the catch?” you say…well, you do have to sign up for your first month, then after that, you’re free to leave and go on without a contract from one of the monthly price points listed below;

  • $20/month for 1GB
  • $35/month for 3GB
  • $50/month for 5GB
  • $80/month for 8GB

Seems like a pretty good deal for the Galaxy Tab considering it hasn’t been out just over a month. Will this new price convince you to grab one?

The HTC Knight, also known as the EVO Shift 4G and Speedy, has shown up in the Best Buy data transfer system as the HTC PG0610. This is the Android device with a slide-out keyboard  that is expected to be released on Sprint, as their version of the G2.

Details about the device haven’t exactly been figured out though — but if it’s showing up in Best Buy’s system, hopefully it won’t be too long before we see a release.

Best Buy in the US has marked down the AT&T Dell Streak from $499 (regular price) to $99 (on a 2 year contract). I know, sounds amazing! It is a pretty good deal, but just to be clear, the $99 price is with a 2 year contract, the regular price they have listed was without contracts…those marketing decievers!

In any regard, it’s still a pretty sweet deal for the Dell Streak which is getting Android 2.2 updates by the end of this month as well, making this a pretty hot deal. If you like, hit up Best Buy here, and pick either the white or black editions for the same sale price.
